Chinese computer manufacturer Lenovo said today that it will be launching a “lighter and quicker” ThinkPad notebook computer this month. According to Lenovo, the tablet, with the moniker ThinkPad X1 Carbon, will mostly appeal to consumers who love the convenience of using smartphones and tablets.

Dilip Bhatia, the Vice President of the ThinkPad business unit, explained that its latest ThinkPad will include a third-generation wireless connectivity as well as other features inspired by tablets and smartphones. As we mentioned before, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon will sport a 14-inch display and a lightweight design – weighing only three pounds.

Apart from its tough and durable body, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is said to have up to eight hours of battery life, thanks to its rapid-charge battery.
